Apart from a powerful engine, the XUV300 will also likely receive a few cosmetic updates to set it apart from the rectangular turbo-petrol. On the outside, the updated XUV300 would come with a new gloss black grille with red accents, a blacked out central air intake on the front bumper and Mahindra’s new Twin Peaks logo.

The dashboard, for instance, is finished in black as opposed to the dual-tone and beige combination seen on the regular variant.
